FAQs for Hunters

Do I need a CV for the Forces Transition Group job fair?

No – you can attend even if you have not got around to sorting out your CV. You will still be able to interact directly with potential employers during the job fair.

(Top Tip – it’s always a good idea to get your CV prepared anyway. If you need help with this just get in touch with us here)

I cannot make the online Jobs Fair, will it be repeated?

Not exactly – we try to make each job fair fresh and exciting by showcasing new employers that have not exhibited before, so only a handful of key exhibitors are invited to return. Some exhibitors choose to have their presentation permanently on the job fairs website so you can return anytime to view those.

I've already left the forces, can I attend the job fair?

Yes, if you ever served within the forces, this is for you.

Can I attend the job fair if I have not started my transition?

Yes you can – many ‘in-service’ Forces personnel attend our job fairs as it helps them identify career paths that they may not have thought of.
